'll defer that judgment to history. as to the comment i made about the most dangerous foreign policy decision since vietnam was about not just the surge, but the overall war of choice going into iraq. >> ah. not just about the surge, it was about the overall war of choice going into iraq. right. so is john mccain trying to relitigate that? the overall war of choice going into iraq? is he trying to relitigate that the decision to go into iraq was a disaster? yes, actually, yes. that is what this is all about, an effort to rehabilitate the iraq war in the american mind, to make it seem like it was success, or at least that it wasn't a bad idea, or at least that it wasn't the biggest foreign policy disaster since vietnam, or at least that it wasn't a scandal that ought to scar everybody associated with it in american politics for the rest of their careers. and because being wrong about the iraq war was not just an individual scandal, but a big scandal, this ends up being a big project, this revisionist history, until we come clean about this. until we get honest about it. until we can d
swayinger right now and a lot of confidence. and forepolicy, he's kind of outsourced foreign policy in the first term. he's insourcing it back in the whitehouse again. this is his foreign policy and he's running into controversy over the drone program right now. this is a foreign policy national security team that is much more implementers and not super stars in their own right. barack obama has got ownership. he doesn't seem to support the kind of cast he had four years ago. >> rose: mark halperin when you looked at the possibilities of dealing with republicans especially the sequester question, is there some sense that the administration kneeling confident has pulled it off? >> i'm more pessimistic about it than i've been since probably the president took office. these other issues -- >> rose: since he was re-elected. >> no, since he took office. put these other issues on the table. gun control and climate change. i don't think there's any chance of those move until and unless he gets a fiscal deal in part because the traffic won't bear other big big things. and also because i d
foreign policy record. which is worse? >> i tell you one thing, i think boehner has his own internal problems and that he shouldn't run out there and get in the president's way because in doing that he's getting in the american people's way. i think it's time that people want to see us go above party and think in terms of our country. i think they're exhausted at the partisan politics and now is the time to rembuild america and moe forward. >> i thought it was speaker bain mother didn't have the guts to do a grand bargain deal with the president because he was frightened of eric cantor in 2011. now he's saying it's the president who doesn't have the guts. i mean, this is total revisionism, isn't it? >> well, you can see that boehner wants everyone to respond to the president, the tea party, the republican party. if there was a moderate part of the republican party, i guess there will be a chance to respond, too. i don't really think that boehner is speaking for the american people or the republicans for that matter. i think that he is trying to keep these primaries -- tea party prima
of the last decade. at the moment, few americans spontaneously mentioned foreign policy, or specifically the wars in afghanistan, conflicts in the middle east, or even things like nuclear weapons in korea. anything having to do with foreign policy or overseas activity is not top of mind for the average american at this point. we just measured obama on approval rating. his number one issue was national defence. it is a strength for this president. he is perceived as doing well on that part of his portfolio. but it is not a party for americans. host: very interesting information. the c-span audience is getting a first look at it with you. thank you for giving us a preview on america's most important problems, as we look at the state of the union address. thanks so much. we are going to go back to our phone calls, asking you the same question. what is taught on your mind, in problems facing the country? aha caller: -- ♪ caller: a relief of the president stresses the importance of both sides putting aside their own political interests in the sake of moving the country forward. there are wa
of other issues from energy to manufacturing, touched on foreign policy and at the end reached, i think it's fair to say, an emotional crescendo when he talked about gun violence in america and recognized a number of individuals there in the house chamber who have been touched by gun violence. either they're the survivors, surviving family members or who themselves have been victims of gun violence. mark, we were counting, i think, as he went through... i know i made some notes. almost a dozen new initiatives the president announced on everything from international trade to higher education to doing something about the voting experience in america. it seemed like the president was trying to inject some energy into his second term. >> i agree wu, judy. i just want to underline the emotional apex of the evening was undoubtedly the "deserve a vote" chant that the president led when he spoke on gun control and the need, making the argument that our police departments were outgunned by those with assault weapons with criminal intent. and i thought that a speech that quite frankly lacked a lot o

talk about foreign policy, it's a direct impact on the department of defense and these are exact questions we should be asking. >> heather: and this is not unprecedented. there are two other times that a cabinet secretary needed 60 votes and both of those bush nominees facing harry reid and democrats and environmental agency head. both had to meet 60 vote threshold. now it has happened to hagel. the third time in ten years. so it's not unprecedented. my question to you, why rush it? >> because the department of defense is responsible for our military. we are currently in conflict right now. i think this is something that has to deal with national security. you really need to get serious and get to work here. we can't be talking about things that are not relevant. they are asking for information about benghazi and chuck hagel had nothing to do with benghazi. if you wanted questions about that you need to talk on other people. >> heather: they got one of those questions answered, that is whether or not president obama himself personally called libyan officials on the night of septe
rights of law-abiding americans is not the way to do it. on foreign-policy, america continues to be indispensable. property and safeguarding human rights. the world is a better place when america is the strongest nation on earth. but we cannot remain powerful if we do not have an economy that can afford it. in a short time that i have been here in washington, nothing has frustrated me more than politics like what the president has laid out tonight. the choices -- the choice is not just between the government and big business. we need an accountable, efficient government that allows businesses to create more middle-class jobs. we do not have to raise taxes to avoid the president's devastating cuts to our military. republicans have a plan that replaces these cuts with responsible spending reforms. the choice is not have to be higher taxes or benefit cuts for those in need, and said, we should grow economy so that we can create new taxpayers, not new taxes. so our government can afford to help those who cannot help themselves. the truth is, every problem cannot be solved by the g
issues, senior posts, foreign policy, and the republican party's reaction has been to spaz out, and it makes them look bad. >> speaking of spazing out, we have to leave it there. thank you, ari, nia, sam, and carrie. that's all for "now." see you tomorrow when i'm joined by harold ford jr., cnbc's andrew ross sorkin, ryan grim, heather mcgehee, and actress and activist kristen davis. until then, you can find us at facebook.com/now with alex. andrea mitchell reports is next. it's tax refund time and wesley & ashley are looking for a brand new smartphone. let's go. we've got a samsung galaxy sii on t-mobile monthly4g for only $299 with no annual contract. nice! [ earl ] see for yourself. get the samsung galaxy s ii on t-mobile's nationwide 4g network. walmart. i just served my mother-in-law your chicken noodle soup but she loved it so much... i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then. but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup.
administration. it was very nice of him to bring up foreign policy, because in fact he has not been transparent at all about his drone war or his kill list or any of the other things that have to be leaked for us to find out about. we still don't know what he was doing the night of the attack in benghazi. not just the night of the attack in benghazi but also the night on the attack on the cairo embassy and other embassies in the middle east. if he is transparent, you know, this is sort of basic information that he should provide. >> bret: so you agree that for these senators to say hey, we need this information, it's okay for them to hold up even national security cabinet position for some time to get it. >> the president should be given extreme deference in appointing his members of his cabinet. the way john bolton was treated was terrible. i said that at the time. i think there has to be a real reason. in this situation, i think he will be confirmed but it is sad that lindsey graham has the hold up a nomination to find out where the president was the night of the terrorist attack. i mean some
achieve or how the talks would be successful. there seemed to be me a lot of that. on foreign policy, that was not really the focus of the speech he talked about the range of capabilities we will employ in pursuing terrorists abroad, a vague reference to drones and framework he has created to permit to us go after terrorists in way that is lawful. that is probably met with some skepticism in the chamber as well. >> chris: he did mention north korea. they launched a nuclear device, they tested a nuclear device last night. the president said provocations we saw last night will only isolate them further as we strengthen our own missile defense in spochx to these threats. he didn't say much more. quite frankly he can't do much more than that given the fact, unless you go to the war with north korea we can't i am poets any more sanctions. inquiry sanctioned out to take reprice wills there. >> and one of the few times both sides of chamber rose in unison was when the president said pledge to stand by israel and its security. he would keep the pressure up on the syrian regime that is murder
country. our foreign policy, america continues to be indecember pencible to global liberty. the world is a better place when america is the strongest nation on it. we can't remain powerful if we don't have an economy that can afford it. nothing has frust rated me more than false choices like the president layed out tonight. the choices are not just between big government and big business. we need an effective government that allows new businesses to create middle class jobs. we don't have to raise taxes to avoid the devastating cuts to our military. republicans have proposed a plan . in other words to balance the budget the choices don't have to be higher tacks. instead we should grow the economy so we create new taxpayers not new taxes. so the government will be able to help those who can't help themselves. every problem can't be solved by the government. many are caused by the moral break down in our society. despite our differences i know that republicans and democrats love america. i say we come together to solve our problems. the choices before us could not be more important. if
in the form of north korea, foreign policy, a standoff in california tonight, the gun debate. >> the gun debate is one that's thrust itself into the nation's attention span, and the president's agenda, and this is going to only encourage that, but really the tone everybody is looking for is his tone vis-a-vis republicans. the inaugural, he had his elbows out a little bit. he was very newly confident just coming off that re-election. people will be watching to see how aggressive and confrontational he will be with them on the deficit, on the investment proposals he's going to make tonight which are modest but, nonetheless, are there. and on immigration, which is one way republicans are coming his way. >> larry kudlow, tonight you talked about the line between being assertive and confident and overreach. where is that tonight? >> that's a good question. a lot of people hope he will be more centrist including me so he can make a deal. there are a lot of deals out there that need to be made. somewhere in this, carl, i'm looking for a real pro-growth policy measure. maybe i'm wishing against
of the speech, to talk about foreign policy and the white house has indicated there will be other speeches on that front. i wanted to say, george, i was in the house chamber earlier this morning at 10:00 in the morning and some of these people were already in there. >> long day and a long night. you mentioned afghanistan, we're joined bid martha raddatz, our chief global affairs correspondent. the president did put a number on how many troops will come out this year, martha. >> 34,000 troops by this time next year will be out of afghanistan. we have about 66,000 troops there now. so, that is a big announcement. also, one change he did have to make to his speech today is the north korean conducted a nuclear test today, the third nuclear test they've conducted, two of those nuclear tests have been during president obama's term. >> the white house encouraged, martha, by the response of china to that north korean nuclear test. they believe china willing to crack down a little harder now? >> well, i think the response was somewhat muted from china, i think they expected more. they condemned the
foreign policy tonight. you will hear about the president trying to, um, pull troops out of afghanistan. you can bet we'll hear that. and, of course, we'll probably hear about north korea since that happened today. i heard you mention that earlier. so that might change things a little bit. but i think there will be a good number of things that he will not mention, which is interesting. >> guest: for the record, i've never observed a pattern of wars beginning in conjunction with state of the union addresses. [laughter] but one thing i'm going to be watching for is the congressional black caucus met recently with valerie jarrett on the hill, and she's one of the president's top advisers. they discussed the state of the union to some extent, and the question i have is whether he's going to address black unemployment specifically and things that will help bring that number down. i think that that's what the congressional black caucus wants, but i don't know if that's what he's going to do. >> host: we're talking with anita kumar and jonathan strong, iowa anita works for mcclatchy newspapers
